One year after struggling to recruit in the state of Virginia, Virginia Tech football coach Brent Pry and his staff hit it big in the Class of 2024 in their state. They landed some of the top talent that the state had to offer in the recruiting trail.
Saturday night, the Hokies made one more in-state splash when they got a commitment from a three-star wide receiver.
Virginia Tech gets a commitment from Lamar Booker on a PWO
Virginia Tech football coach Brent Pry was at Cassell Coliseum as a fan with his family taking in the Hokies' 91-67 ACC victory over Georgia Tech. Some of his other coaches posted on X that they were also in attendance and while the game was going on, three-star wide receiver Lamar Booker from Richmond announced on X that he was committed to Virginia Tech.
According to 247 Sports, Booker is a three-star receiver who had offers from Duke, Boston College, Connecticut, and Rutgers to name a few schools. The 6-foot-2, 193-pound Booker is going to Virginia Tech as a preferred walk-on rather than accepting scholarships at other schools.
Virginia Tech has a very crowded wide receiver room for next season with Ali Jennings, Jaylin Lane, Da'Quan Felton, and Stephen Gosnell returning, but they also will have two recruits from Virginia joining them in Keylen Adams and Chanz Wiggins. Now you can add Booker to the group.
This is yet another sign that Pry and his staff are starting to hit it big with recruits in Virginia, something that is needed to continue to trend in the right direction with the rebuild. Things continue to trend in the right direction for 2024 and beyond for the Hokies.
